Always Be Learning

Continuous learning is at the core of Quartz. Learn at every step and adjust your plans accordingly.

Product Strategy

Before investing in a new idea, whether a new product, a new initiative, or a new launch, know whether it is worth it for your organization, where it fits in your portfolio, and what people will benefit.

Product Planning

With the approval to proceed with the innovation, lay out the vision and goals of the project, define who will buy and adopt the innovation, and start creating.

Product Growth

Concurrent with product creation, prepare your internal teams to deliver to your market and customers. Come up with go-to-market plans and define launch goals. As you execute, consider what has and has not worked and feed that information back into the organization.
